Fresh South East Asian food in self-consciously eclectic surroundings of Vietnamese ephemera alongside Communist and psudo-Communist visuals.

I dropped in here for dinner after a long drive and was surprised by the place. It was very cool and felt a little like being on a roadside cafe in Vietnam. The food was good, I had some amazing rendang chips! The beer was...More

Eat here with two friends, thought it was a bit pricey. Food was nice, decor was good but it's looking dirty worn and tired. Staff knew the menu well and gave good GF for options. Desserts were a bit bland

Visited here on 21st March, the food is amazing, it is a little bit expensive but you really get what you pay for and the ‘tapas’ portions are more than generous, we got 7 between 2 and felt you could have had less. The place...More

We went here for my husbands birthday and was overwhelmed by how nice the food and atmosphere was inside. A little expensive but you get what you pay for as the food was amazing! Can't wait to return again soon!
